From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The blue area is New York State; the red area is area code 716

Area code 716 is an area code that used to dominate Western New York until the new area code of 585 was split off for the Rochester Area in 2002. Until 1993, it was bounded over the Niagara River by area code 416 (now area codes 905 and 289) in Canada.

The 716 area code was one of the original set of area codes issued in October 1947.

Counties and communities that use this area code

Because of Olean's proximity to the 716/585 line, some Olean exchanges use the 585 area code (particularly those in use for Sprint Nextel cell phones).
